Association of Eretz Israel Diamond Industry. The forms contain
information on the place of birth, aliyah, education, prior employment
and sometimes even a picture. The index IGRA has built contains part
of the information, thus allowing the researcher to decide if this is

Municipal Archives. Their collection is not complete, and only a small
part of about 200 workers has been indexed.
